It is that lovely time of the month where the DLC Clue thread comes into play. A time where I post some utterly vague clues about the cars of the upcoming December pack and you make your best guess. The December car pack will be released on Tuesday December 6 around 10 a.m. Pacific. Be sure to come watch me show off the cars of the pack in the Beam and Twitch streams that will start as soon as the pack is released.
So the rules here are simple. Only post your guesses. Keep banter to a minimum. One guess per person, but you can change your guess if a lightbulb comes on in your head. I may gift credits to correct guesses, I may not. I may like posts with correct guesses, I may not.
Most of all have fun, after all that is the primary purpose of the DLC Clue Thread.
Clue 1 Car 1
It is of the past, does not exist in the present and speaks to the future
Clue 1 Car 2
The Tifosi thought it was a ripoff.
Clue 1 Car 3
Being trendy can also be exciting.
Clue 1 Car 4
If it looks like a race car and drives like a race car but, does that make it a race car?
Clue 1 Car 5
Something is missing.
Clue 1 Car 6
Representing a period of absolute dominance.
Clue 1 Car 7
It was both the beginning and the end for this model.
Don’t we all hope the MR2 is brought back!
Don’t really have a clue for any of them.
One of them sounds like the DeLorean DMC-12 because for number 7 it says " it was the beginning and end for this model". The DeLorean only had the DMC-12 to current.
I guess they have said that they are remodelling it and selling it as a new car!
It exists in the present though. There’s a small company out there Manufacturing Deloreans. There’s a guy that brings his NEW Delorean to the Cars and Coffee event every month. I have some photos of it on my Onedrive account. http://www.newdelorean.com/
And let me tell you, That car is a dog Stock, even the old ones were dogs for their day.
I’ve never understood the desire for it in racing games. It’s not a good car. Having said that, if almost be happy to get it so people would stop asking for it. I think the clue is obviously trying to get people to think that’s the car, hopefully to pull the rug out from under them
And I’ve also heard the Fiero called the poor man’s ferrari, but I would hope we would get the mr2 instead. It’s common in the mr2 community to hear it called that.
*insert meme of Clarkson telling Will.i.am the Fiero was the poor man’s mr2.
It’s an amazing car. I like to drive in chase view, and one of the most important things that makes a desirebale car in a game, is how good it looks from behind. Anything can be tuned up in this arcade racer as the physics aren’t entirely rooted in reality. So yeah, I want this car very much
Could car 1 be the Mazda Furai? I mean, it’s not of the distant past, but definitely of the past. It died in a fire, so does not exist in the present, and if I had to chose one sentence to describe the Furai, it would be: it speaks to the future. The car was as Top Gear put it: possibly the defining concept car of its era. Meaning it clearly had a big influence on automotive design. Cars of today even look like they might’ve been developed through inspiration from Mazda’s Nagare design language, the Furai was supposed to showcase. Could I be correct?
